Find out if a bone conduction implant can help your child
Every child is different and so is a child’s hearing loss. Perhaps your child is deaf in one ear or was born with Microtia or Atresia. Or perhaps they suffer from chronic ear infections or constantly draining ears and have hearing loss. Maybe they've tried hearing aids and are still struggling to hear. If your child has conducitive hearing loss, mixed hearing loss or single-sided deafness, a bone conduction implant may be able to help.
Does your child qualify for a bone conduction implant?
Bone conduction implants can help children ages 5 and older with single-sided deafness, conductive hearing loss and mixed hearing loss.
Conditions like Microtia and Atresia, Down syndrome, Treacher Collins syndrome, Goldenhar syndrome and ear infections can make wearing hearing aids difficult.
A Hearing Implant Specialist will be able to advise if your child may benefit from a bone conduction implant. Find one today.
Will your child benefit from a bone conduction implant?
The good news is that research and decades of experience demonstrate that bone conduction implants may help your child:1-5
Hear better, even in noisy situations2
Enjoy a clean, more natural sound because bypassing the damaged part of their ear may reduce the amount of amplification needed to help them hear better compared to hearing aids2
Hear sounds as if they are coming from both sides
Become more aware of their surroundings, increasing his or her ability to hear important sounds4
Engage in conversations more easily.

Are there bone conduction solutions that don’t need surgery?
Yes! One of the great features of the Baha System is your child (under the age of 5) can experience all the benefits it provides even if they are too young for an implant.
The Baha Softband and SoundArc are non-surgical solutions that are designed to provide children under the age of five6 with the hearing performance and amplification they need to help with language development on par with their hearing peers.7,8 Both solutions are designed to provide the same hearing benefits and will work with any of the Baha 5 Sound Processors.
